Suzanne Kaaren played Gayle Tempest. This was her third film with the Stooges. Ms Kaaren was an original Rockette at Radio City Music Hall in 1932. She was under contract at Fox when this picture was made. Her chemistry with the Stooges is evident, as well as her timing. A fine "straight man" playing to the boys' antics.

This episode's definitely in the top 10 if not #1... Things keep getting funnier and more & more insane.. Curly has got to be the most sincerely insane person on the planet!.. The others are a close 2nd.. I hadn't seen this episode since I was about 10 years old and had forgotten most of it, but what a treat it was to go insane along with them and then try to fight my way back to reality laughing all the way.. It's like Forrest Gump gone insane on steroids!!

I must have seen this a dozen times and it is still really funny! Larry has some of the best lines in this episode as well as being hilarious when he starts to play the violin. Stooges rule.

I enjoyed this movie. I don't think I could take more than a couple of these shorts at one time however. Curly always steals the show.

About the same year this movie was made, my father worked as an usher at the Riverside theatre in Milwaukee Wi.. He told my brother and I this interesting story about the Stooges.

It was toward the middle of the depression years and money was scarce, most everyone was living in desperation. It was not unusual for people to be extremely careful about their money. This of course included the 3 Stooges. My dad said the Stooges were appearing at the Riverside theatre one night to premiere one of their films. They wouldn't go on stage until they had counted all the tickets that were sold for the performance.
Evidently they got a percentage of the tickets sold. Aparently they had been "swindled" before. Only when they were sure what their pay for the evening was, would they agree to appear before the audience.

I'm a huge Three Stooges fan and this one's amongst my favorites. Most of their early stuff (they started making two-reelers in 1934) are pretty good as they hadn't started rehashing storylines and sight-gags yet. In 1936 America, the legal profession and the courts in general were looked upon with respect, so this short poking fun at all that was really pushing the envelope at the time. During the scene where Moe swallows the harmonica and Curly & Larry turn him into an organ-grinder, they cut to the audience as they laugh at them. In the middle of the first row is an older man with a moustache and glasses; that's Sol Horwitz, Moe, Curly and Shemp's father. He showed up on the set one day to watch and director Preston Black put him in the scene.

This is one of the funnier of the Three Stooges shorts. Larry, Moe and Curly are brought in to testify in the defense of a nightclub dancer accused of murdering her boyfriend. A courtroom is definitely not the place for the Stooges, and the resulting lawlessness is quite funny, at times getting close to the brilliance of the Marx Brothers. Highlights include Moe and Larry playing tic tac toe on the back of the defense attorneyÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂs jacket, Moe swallowing a harmonica and being turned into a calliope by Larry, Curly attempting to swear in and not being able to do two things simultaneously, and Curly struggling with a gun (something that should never be given to one of the Stooges). The StoogesÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ humor usually falls flat with me, but I found myself laughing out loud at this one.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: *****. Weirdness: *****. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: *****.
